“You know how there’s no Asian American players in the NBA yet? There are Asians — Yao Ming, Wang Zhizhi — but no Asian American has yet broken that barrier. My theory is that that guy exists or did exist who had the natural ability and the physiology and everything, but his parents were so fixated on him playing the piano or violin, studying for the SATs, that they didn’t cultivate his natural talent. So that guy is probably now doing bookkeeping. Or in the IT department of a big company.”
–Jimmy Tsai, co-writer, co-producer and star of “Ping Pong Playa,” at the LA Times.
“Outlander is set in Viking times in Norway, and very early on in the script an alien ship crash-lands on Earth and brings with it, as well as Jim Caviezel, this terrifying dragon. It’s taking a while to come out.”
–Sophia Myles describes Howard McCain’s “Outlander,” a movie that really couldn’t sound more awesome, at New York.
“I don’t really respect her enough to want to play her, and I find it sad and disappointing.”
–Susan Sarandon on Hillary Clinton, at the Advocate.
